Published: Sunday 20th of January 2013
Visitors to this attraction can uncover tales of explorers who sailed the seven seas and explore Britain's seafaring history in the largest maritime museum in the world.
One highlight for those who have always dreamed of being a captain or a pirate is the state-of-the-art Bride simulator on which they can sail a ship into port.
The attraction contains more than two million objects related to seafaring, featuring both permanent and changing exhibitions over three floors.
What's more, it possesses the most important holdings in the world when it comes to Britain's impressive history on the waves, including British and Dutch maritime art, cartography, manuscripts and ship models.
Currently showing is the Ansel Adams: Photography from the Mountains to the Sea exhibition, which is running until April 28th.
